Wijit Lever-Drive & Braking System

for Manual Wheelchairs

About Wijits

Wijits are the fast, fun, easy-to-use lever-drive & braking system that replaces the wheels on your wheelchair and let you stop safer, turn sharper, climb higher, and go further than in a standard push-rim wheelchair; without sore shoulders, torn gloves or dirty hands.

Stop Safer

The Wijit has brakes that let you easily stop your chair by pulling in on the levers without touching the push-rims. Friction burns are a thing of the past. Braking is as simple as pulling the handles together, giving you precise stopping power even while descending, without callused hands or shredded gloves.

Forward & Reverse

Shifter knobs located above the hand grips allow you to easily shift between forward, neutral and reverse.



Award-Winning Device

The award-winning Wijit delivers increased mobility and control, while protecting you from repetitive stress injury. And it helps you get more exercise, resulting in improved overall health.

Easy Installation

Wijits replace your current wheels with a lever drive wheel assembly, using our wheelchair specific replacement axle kits. Axle kits are available for most makes and models of wheelchairs; from institutional models to light weight specialty chairs. With the right axles you can quickly swap between regular wheels and Wijits, allowing you to use Wijits when you want and push rims when they make more sense. Most fit kits can be installed by someone with basic mechanical skills and the right tools.

Easy to Use

The combination of the lever drive and the transmission reduces the force required to move your chair. And reduces the number of times you have to push the wheels each day by a factor of 2 to 3. The brakes let you stop the chair easily. Quick release hubs make it easy to remove and install the wheels to simplify transporting your chair. The Wijit lets you drive, steer and brake without ever touching the wheels.



Improved Mobility

With a nearly 1:2 ratio lever-drive system, Wijits are faster and require less effort than push-rim wheelchairs, allowing you to travel farther than with your current chair with less effort. Easily navigate tight turns.

Roll Stronger

Wijits improve strength and increase conditioning in a way no power assist device or traditional push-rim wheelchair can match.

Climb Higher

Wijits offer tremendous leverage, allowing you to quickly scale non-compliant ramps and slopes you would never attempt in a regular chair.


Wijits fit nearly any manual chair from any manufacturer using our chair-specific fit kits. Get a new wheelchair? Just order the kit for your new chair and your Wijits will pop right on (may require brake adjustment and new quick releases). Wijits make your current chair a better ride. Check our Compatibility Chart to see if your wheelchair is compatible with Wijits.
